Serendipitous Short Hair at Studio Fix by Alex Carbonell


Serendipity occurs when something wonderful happens unexpectedly. Because you don't plan for it to happen, the beautiful or happy event that occurs serendipitously becomes all the more poignant, as if touched by grace. It can happen from the profound and deepest aspects of life (such as love) to the most mundane and kikay of things, like finding an amazing dress at the mall when you've just planned to go there to window shop, and even better, finding it on sale. Or it can happen while getting a haircut.  A few months ago (I know it's been months but better late than never!), serendipity happened to me in the hands of my favorite stylist, Alex Carbonell.

Happy Weekend x Five Things Friday

Hello, lovelies! I know I haven't been posting here much lately. I blame it on life and work demands, but hopefully that will all soon change as I gear towards more balance in life, work, and creative passions. 

Wanted to post this after the previous weekend, but it's now Friday and it looks like this will turn out to be a Five Things Friday post.  But it will be all about the things I have loved and appreciated last weekend. 

Such as discovering the capability of my new smartphone to capture my handwriting and actually write on my photos! Take that iPhone 5 (kidding!)
My red vintage Gucci collection. And that's my handwriting on the picture using Samsung Galaxy Note 2's S Pen. Wala nang kokontra---mas astig Note 2 kesa iPhone. And this coming from a girl who loved her iPhone. Right @aissa515 @aguilab? #Note2 #samsung #

Dreaming of Fall/Winter with a Basic Black Shirt

Hello there! Hope everyone is having a great start to 2013 so far.

To welcome the new year, I spent a weekend in Baguio, the City of Pines, and welcomed the opportunity to dress for the cold weather. I brought out the knit hats, the jackets and the scarves. Particularly, a breton shirt bought from a recent trip to Korea proved to be quite the remarkable basic item from which I was able to style three different looks, as you can see from these photos via Instagram:

On Love

loving sunset
I first discovered Kent Nerburn's "Falling in Love" (also excerpted as "On Love;), a chapter from his book Letters to My Son: A Father's Wisdom on Manhood, Life and Love, way back in high school.  Back then, it seems that the worst thing that can happen in the realm of love was realizing a crush doesn't have a crush on me.  In 2012, I look back yet again to its simple but profound wisdom, as I know it can still teach me a thing or two about life and love. These are words that any one who has fallen in love should always remember and should never forget.

The Enduring Allure of the Little Black Dress

Hello there! I've been away for quite some time I know! Traveled to one of my favorite countries last month, celebrated my birthday, and basically just devoted time to catch up with work and family commitments and well, Life.

But I've definitely missed blogging and you my dear readers.  This time, I'm back with this post for all you classic (and classy) ladies out there.

Champagne Room

Back in September, the Boyfriend and I celebrated our anniversary in one of the restaurants we've wanted to try for the longest time: Champagne Room. This restaurant is located in Manila Hotel, the grand dame of hotels in Manila.
Manila Hotel has recently undergone some renovations and refurbishments, especially with its restaurants.  Since Champagne Room has been on our restaurant list, our anniversary  was the perfect occasion to find out for ourselves what makes Champagne Room special.
